Item Description: Jonathan Lee Publishing Corp. (New York City), 1936. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First edition. Hardback. Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon's own story revealing the inside story of the Lindbergh-Hauptmann kidnapping. 'Of "the greatest criminal case in all human history," probably ten million words have been written.In this case, three figures stand out above all others. They are : Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh, Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon, and Bruno Richard Hauptmann. The first will probably never tell his story, the third cannot tell his, while as to the second - for almost four years he steadfastly refused to do so, except for his trial testimony, even in the face of misrepresentation, vituperation, and vile slander. Why did Jafsie refuse to answer his slanderers directly? Only those who know this remarkable man personally understand.He insisted on maintaining silence until the appeal of Hauptmann's conviction had been passed upon by the Highest Court. Yet Doctor Condon, for fifty years a teacher in our public schools.beloved by his neighbors and their children; this same Doctor Condon, 75 years of age. a devoted father, gentle of voice, kindly of manner, considerate of others, ever ready to help the unfortunate. he it is who was called "King of the Kidnappers," and "Hauptmann's Accomplice." This might well have been a matter for laughter and ridicule on Doctor Condon's part, for he has a keen sense of humor, had not a mother's broken heart in her agony of tears, stilled his lips. But now the scene has changed.Now the trial is long past, the verdict given, the conviction upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. Now the real truth can be told; the scandal-mongers, the yellow press, the vultures and jackals of tragedy and death driven to cover. In the following pages, the gentle Doctor Condon, Titan of courage, devout man of faith, fervent patriot, tells for the permanent record of History.the true story of the vital, heroic part he played in the Lindbergh-Hauptmann case - a part that will go down through Time as one of the finest, most unselfish records of conduct any man could bequeath to posterity.' Illus. 238pp. 8vo. h/back. With personal b/plate of previous owner to fpd, v.v. lightly browned edges, dull sp. plus two faint 3" scratch mks. to lower cover (see image).

Item Description: Jonathan Lee Publishing Corp, New York, 1936. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. LAVISHLY INSCRIBED BY DR. JOHN F. CONDON (REFERRING TO THIS BOOK AS "THE LAST VOLUME OF MY HONEST EFFORTS IN THE LINDBERGH CASE") on the front free endpaper. A solid copy to boot of the 1936 1st edition --AND IN ITS UNCOMMON DUSTJACKET. Tight and VG in its blue cloth, with very light wear to the spine ends and light scuffing at the panels. The dustjacket, which shows heavy wear and a degree of loss along the edges, is missing roughly half of its spine. It merits a Good- to Good only but is still quite presentable and scarce, even as such. Octavo, 8 black-and-white photographs accompanying the text. Compelling, uncommon memoir by the retired New York City high school principal who found himself right in the middle of the Lindbergh case when the kipnapper(s), incredibly, responded to his offer --as communicated thru the classified section of a small, local Bronx newspaper-- to serve as a go-between. Condon emerged as one of the key figures in this extraordinary case and controversy, which he's here trying to put to rest, dogged him the rest of his life. Bookseller Inventory # 13298
